Model Answer 1:
Parents play an important role for every kid and it is believed by some people that parents are good teachers. Whereas others convey that teachers and elders are best mentors. However, I believe that at initial stage parents are ever best teachers for following reasons.
On top of this statement both father and mother are the best teachers from childhood till teenage. In most of the cases this teaching and learning extend to old age. Subsequently, no matter how old children grow, they are still loved by the parents. Dad and mom nourish their kids towards good attitudes, education, discipline and social responsibility so that they become role models for their nation. Moreover, children are the future architect of a prosperous country. Both father and mother are key players in etiquette of good and bad qualities to their beloved ones. They should guide how to respect elders, relatives and friends etc. with this they must lay excellent foundation in perspective of education.
On other hand, parents should not forcibly apply their ideas and a thought on children to choose their career option to prosper in area of interest freedom is important fact here. Both dad and mom should mentor and support morally in terms of finance and other aspects which are mandatory to loved ones. Mean while children should not take advantage of love and affection and must be trustworthy to their parents and should not cheat. Children are responsible to fulfill parent’s dreams.
Finally, my conclusion on above statement is parents are good path creators of their children. It depends upon relationship and understanding of both.

Model Answer 2:
We came in this world as an infant with a blank slate in our mind to be filled with various things as we grow older. We receive inputs from the society comprises of peoples such as our parents, siblings, relatives, play mates, friends and our teachers. But our first teachers is our parents and I think they are the best among all the teachers we come across in our life because they are the one we spent most of our time with and they have greater influence of our lives than anyone else.
Learning starts as soon a child appear in his mother’s womb and as per a scientific study evidences were found that most of the neuron connection in human develops even before they come to the world. So undoubtedly parents are first and the most important teachers. They taught us how to eat, how to walk and to summarize how to behave like a human. For example once I had seen a footage on Discovery channel wherein a four year girl was found in the custody of dogs who have raised her ever since her parents left her. And a result of this is that she hardly speaks, she use to bark and walk on four legs instead to two. So this proves that what we see is what we learn. Hence parents play a pivotal role in our life acting as the very first tutor of behavioral science.
Yes there is no doubt that school teachers are the best gift you can get because they bestow you with all the knowledge and experience they have. But characters and personality is built at home and parents are the best teachers because they will always be there for you whenever you feel confused and guide you to the path which is best for you.
